FENLANDER: Two free seminars to help businesses go green

BUSINESSES can pick up some useful advice on how going green can help them grow at two free seminars taking place this month.

The first is at the Boathouse in Wisbech next Wednesday from 8.45am-noon. It will focus on the best ways of monitoring and cutting down on energy usage. It is part of a package of support that Fenland District Council is providing for small and medium-sized companies that already supply goods and services to the council and other potential suppliers.

Two weeks later, on Tuesday September 28, the Green Business Club is hosting a morning seminar at Fenland Hall in March. Entitled “Opportunities for Business in a Green Economy”, it will cover a range of subjects, including how using renewable energy can generate income.

Councillor Peter Murphy, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for the environment, said: “These get-togethers are a great opportunity for businesses to learn more about how reducing their environmental impact can also help them cut costs and win more business. They are also a useful forum in which people can share their knowledge and experience and discuss our overall aims on reducing carbon emissions.”

• For more details or to book places at these events, call Isabel Edgington, FDC’s climate change officer, on 01354 654321 or e-mail iedgington@fenland.gov.uk
